So, a while back, I did a post on non-Hungarian cartoons that I grew up with as a 90's kid in Hungary - mostly to introduce my American friends to what children's TV used to look like in my corner of the 90's world. I chose the "non-Hungarian" theme because I am still thinking about doing all the Hungarian cartoons for A to Z at some point (maybe next year). But of course one post could not cover all the nostalgia I have, so I finally got around to making a second batch.
Theme of the day: Cartoons with repetitive music that will slowly drive the parents mad.
(Again, links point to YouTube videos)
Kisvakond (The Little Mole) (Czech)
opening song which you will never get out of your head. Neither will your parents.
(I absolutely loved this as a kid)
Jamie and the Magic Torch (British)
Varázsceruza (Magic Pencil) (Polish)
Once again, no voices, and music that you will never get out of your head. But it made all of us kinds want to experiment with drawing things that might come to life.
Lolka és Bolka (Lolek and Bolek, mostly distributed in English as Jym and Jam) (Polish)
They are probably brothers.
(You remember that one line from Supernatural where Dean Winchester says "There are two things that I know for certain, one: Bert and Ernie are gay"? Well, the Hungarian dubs for Supernatural translated that as "Lolka and Bolka are gay" - since no one knows Bert and Ernie in Hungary -, effectively making all of us nineties kids twitch around the eyes a little.)
(Maybe I'll make a separate post about strangely replaced pop culture references in Hungarian dubs...)
I feel like there are still more cartoons to share. I'll make a third installment in this series at some point.
